Know Where Your Eyes Are

Recon lets us know that this pair of goggles right here, “Transcend,” is the only pair in the world that provides you with real-time feedback including speed, latitude/longitude, altitude, vertical distance traveled, total distance travelled, chrono/stopwatch mode, a run-counter, temperature and time. Transcend has GPS capabilities, USB charging and data transfer, and post-processing software all with a super easy-to-use, futuristic interface. Recon hints to us that soon there may be an open API app development and download community – with apps!

Everyone loves apps, right? Applications for you to see everything you like through your new Transcend goggles. There’s two models – Transcend SPPX, which is fitted with an SPPX polarized and photochromic lens, and the Transcend SPX which just features an SPX polarized lens. Both rock. Both roll. Hopefully you wont roll though when you’re skiing with them.

The Zeal Optics frame design shows the user info on a micro LCD screen which appears to hang six feet in front of them. Glove-friendly buttons help the user navigate the full-color dashboard and screens. Using the application Recon HQ (which comes free with the goggles) you can upload and track info about your ski sessions instantly. That means contests, real-time sharing, and all sorts of other wacky new-world situations.

Accelerometer, gyroscope, temperature and pressure sensors. GPS chip, micro LCD display, and 3-dimensional lens. Hardcore wild goggles.

    @Björn: Nothing is really necessary in this life, this is just awesome and you must have it.

    Cool stuff! On the move though i would think the vibrations would make the hud unreadable.

      What are you doing that jolts your eyes so much? I'd think that if they were snug against your face (like they should be), you would be able to see them no matter what.

    This needs:
    A) A satellite connection for remote viewing of the person via laptop or other pc.
    B) Compass – you can tell your location and speed, but for some reason, you can't tell direction.

    Gosh, they still make a GPS without a MAP?
    That'll be useful in the next whiteout…

    Compass and Map is essential for anyone that does ANY serious skiing.
